The incredible true story of the card-counting mathematics professor who taught the world how to beat the dealer and, as the first of the great quantitative investors, ushered in a revolution on Wall Street. A child of the Great Depression, legendary mathematician Edward O. Thorp invented card counting, proving the seemingly impossible: that you could beat the dealer at the blackjack table. As a result he launched a gambling renaissance. His remarkable success - and mathematically unassailable method - caused such an uproar that casinos altered the rules of the game to thwart him and the legions he inspired. They barred him from their premises, even put his life in jeopardy. Nonetheless, gambling was forever changed. Thereafter, Thorp shifted his sights to "the biggest casino in the world": Wall Street. Devising and then deploying mathematical formulas to beat the market, Thorp ushered in the era of quantitative finance we live in today. Along the way, the so-called godfather of the quants played bridge with Warren Buffett, crossed swords with a young Rudy Giuliani, detected the Bernie Madoff scheme, and, to beat the game of roulette, invented, with Claude Shannon, the world's first wearable computer. Here, for the first time, Thorp tells the story of what he did, how he did it, his passions and motivations, and the curiosity that has always driven him to disregard conventional wisdom and devise game-changing solutions to seemingly insoluble problems. An intellectual thrill ride, replete with practical wisdom that can guide us all in uncertain financial waters, A Man for All Markets is an instant classic - a book that challenges its readers to think logically about a seemingly irrational world.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1.

A lively and fascinating narrative history about the birth of the modern world. Beginning in the heady days just after the First Crusade, this volume - the third in the series that began with The History of the Ancient World and The History of the Medieval World - chronicles the contradictions of a world in transition. Popes continue to preach crusade, but the hope of a Christian empire comes to a bloody end at the walls of Constantinople. Aristotelian logic and Greek rationality blossom while the Inquisition gathers strength. As kings and emperors continue to insist on their divine rights, ordinary people all over the world seize power: the lingayats of India, the Jacquerie of France, the Red Turbans of China, and the peasants of England. New threats appear, as the Ottomans emerge from a tiny Turkish village and the Mongols ride out of the East to set the world on fire. New currencies are forged, new weapons invented, and world-changing catastrophes alter the landscape: the Little Ice Age and the Great Famine kill millions; the Black Death, millions more. In the chaos of these epoch-making events, our own world begins to take shape. Impressively researched and brilliantly told, The History of the Renaissance World offers not just the names, dates, and facts but the memorable characters who illuminate the years between 1100 and 1453 - years that marked a sea change in mankind's perception of the world. 1.

Recorded ancient history starts when writing was invented. Prehistory is marked by the Early Stone Age or the Paleolithic Era, which was followed by New Stone Age or Neolithic Era. The Agricultural Revolution was from 8000 and 5000 BC; it was during this time that the humans started farming and animal husbandry and settled down to form villages and then civilizations. Expansion of these villages required one to travel and travelling from one place to the other lead to development of transport. The development of farming also lead to division of labor and also lead to the stratification of society into upper class, middle class and lower class. More and more civilizations arose and the population grew, spreading all over the world. The history of the old world, especially the Mediterranean and Europe, is divided into Antiquity or ancient history until AD 476, and the Middle Ages or Postclassical Ages until the 15th century. This age also included the Islamic Golden Age and Renaissance period, the Early Modern period which lasted from the 15th century through the 18th century, and also comprised of Age of Enlightenment and Late Modern period. Finally, from the Industrial Revolution till present day comprises contemporary history. Many important inventions such as printing bought an end to the Middle Ages and heralded the scientific revolution. Growing knowledge and technology quickly bought about the Industrial Revolution by the 18th century. Since the 18th century the world has seen quick changes like increase in population, wars, weapons, commerce, trade, technology, environmental degradation, pollution etc. 1. Language: English.
